User Reviews

Surprisingly Amazing!
16 July 2014 | by Phantom_DuckSee all my reviews

Most of the "Tween Show" offerings from networks like CW, ABC Family, and the worst offender, Disney are so lame and contrived they insult one's intelligence and assault the senses like cold, moldy oatmeal.

This new show is a delight! With a perfect blend of drama and laugh out loud comedy, it portrays the ebb and tide of real world emotions in a clever and fresh new outlook I have only seen on shows like House MD or NYPD Blue.

Moving from dark angst to teenage pranks, sometimes in the same scene: The food court scene from the pilot episode in the mall is hilarious black humor. I won't delve into the plot, others have already covered the storyline.

I ill say that writing is phenomenal, the direction, fast paced and clever, the casting is spot on and their performances amazing.

I am not a youngster, I am in my fifties and thoroughly loved the first three episodes and watching the characters and their complex relationships develop.

Parents who are uncomfortable with real world, teenage drug use, drinking and sexual behaviors may find this show offensive. Then send your kids to a lock down Mormon Academy in Provo, because we behaved like that in the 1970's, my daughter did in the 1990's and my grand daughter does now. This is the real world of teenage, pain, drama, laughter,joy and real risk.

How they learn.

Very well done show, kudos to MTV and all the cast and crew, for producing a fun, edgy program. Particularly when it would be far too easy to follow this genre into the oatmeal bowl of boredom.
